US weddings halted by poor economy

Many postpone a walk down the aisle in hopes of doing it when financial climate improves.

    Weddings are usually big business in the United States. More than $70 billion are spent on them every year. 

    But in the current economic climate, almost half of American adults have decided to put off a walk down the aisle in hopes for a more promising future that will let them fulfill their ideal wedding experience.
